Crewther denies breach

No interest in speculation: Dunkley MP Chris Crewther has dismissed claims that a potential constitutional breach will force a byelection is his marginal seat. Picture: Gary Sissons

Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au DUNKLEY MP Chris Crewther has denied claims he is in violation of the Constitution and incapable of sitting in parliament. Shadow Attorney General Mark Dreyfus MP raised concerns over Mr Crewther’s involvement with Mornington pharmaceutical company Gretals Australia, saying he “must be referred to the High Court.” “Reports today that member for Dunkley Chris Crewther invested in a company that has received federal grants, after spruiking those very grants in Parliament, cast serious doubts over his eligibility for Parliament,” Mr Dreyfus said. “Astonishingly, on 6 September this year, Mr Crewther disclosed to the House of Representatives he had then invested $25,000 in Gretals Australia, a biotechnology company. The 2017 grant is on top of Gretals’ ongoing involvement with an Australian Research Council Linkage grant, involving more than $400,000 of Commonwealth money, through which Gretals stands to gain significant commercial benefit. “The Constitution is clear, members of Parliament cannot have an interest in agreements with the Commonwealth, whether direct or indirect. Mr Morrison must refer Mr Crewther to the High Court without delay.” Section 44 (v) of the Constitution states that if an MP “has any direct or indirect pecuniary interest in any agreement with the Public Service of the Commonwealth otherwise than as a member and in common with the other members of an incorporated company consisting of more than twenty-five persons” they “shall be incapable of being chosen or of sitting as a senator or a member of the House of Representatives.”

Mr Crewther declared on 6 September that he had bought shares in Gretals through a self managed super fund with his wife. Gretals declared on 22 August that Mr Crewther had purchased $25,000 in shares. Mr Crewther told parliament on 23 October 2017 that he had “met with the CEO of Gretals Alistair Cumming to discuss how they will benefit from their recently received $50,000 grant under the government’s global connections fund, as part of the national innovation and science agenda, as well as other recent federal funding they have received”. The Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering (ATSE) announced Gretals had received the “bridging grant” of $50,000 in August 2017. The bridging grants program has its recipients chosen by the ATSE, but funding to the ATSE for the grants comes from the federal government. However, Mr Cumming told The Times that Gretals “did not proceed” with projects that were to be financed through the global connections fund. “We never received funding,” he said. The Australian Research Council, a federal government agency, also lists Gretals as a partner organisation of the University of Melbourne in a three-year project that started in 2017, that received $421,854 from the government . A statement from a federal government spokesman provided to The Times denied the ARC grant would cause an issue. “The government has written advice from the Australia Research Council that the university that applies for ARC grant funding is paid the grant money. Partner organisations do not receive grant money from the ARC. Partner organisations are required to provide cash or in-kind support to the project,” the statement said. Continued Page 4

Tennis club fears ‘death’without funds Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au FRANKSTON Tennis Club worry that the “death” of their club could be imminent without state and federal government funding to construct their new home. Works on Frankston Hospital under a reelected state Labor government are set to wipe out land used by the club, meaning they must find a new home. Discussions with council led to the club accepting a relocation to Centenary Park in Langwarrin, a venue with less courts than the club’s existing space. Frankston Council have committed $11 million to the redevelopment of Centenary Park, but without support from state and federal government, that funding will be pulled. “We had a lease in place until December 1, 2022. Now obviously the expansion of the hospital has always been our priority, we’ve never tried to block it. That expansion is very important,” Frankston Tennis Club relocation subcommittee chairman John McGillivray said. “We’re looking for $8 million each from the state and federal government. We’ve co-operated so far, but we could be left without a club. We’ve met with state and federal members and candidates and they’re very supportive, but we need funding from them to get the thing built. We’re asking only to replace what we’ve already got.” Liberal candidate Michael Lamb has pledged $8.05 million to the council-backed project. Frankston MP Paul Edbrooke is yet to com-

mit to funding the project, but told a candidate’s forum on 1 November to “watch this space”. The club now has a lease until the end of 2019, when they must leave whether works at Centenary Park have begun or not. They have raised $3 million of their own to contribute to the project. Mr McGillivray said there were grave concerns about the future of the club if complete funding could not be secured. “I can only assume we would be told to go out to Centenary Park anyway and use the facilities that are out there. That would be the end of the club, because the facilities out there are second rate. They need to be ripped out and replaced, so it would be basically the death of the Frankston Tennis Club,” he said. Frankston mayor Cr Colin Hampton said that council is working with local members to secure funding for the new facilities. “Council has been advocating with federal and state level of government to not just move the tennis to Centenary Park, but to make it a regional hub for sport,” he said. “This up front money commitment is contingent on the federal and state government. If they don’t contribute, our money won’t go in.” Peninsula Health bought the land for $3 million in late 2017, a small fraction of the asking price for the Centenary Park redevelopment. Half of that money was paid to the tennis club, and half to the council for the land. The revamped Centenary Park will also home facilities for gymnastics. The 127-year-old club has agreed to merge with Frankston East Tennis Club as part of the relocation.

Youth mayor pulls no punches Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au THE inaugural youth mayor at council is fighting for Frankston in unexpected ways. 19-year-old Gerard Felipe gets his kicks from more than just serving youth in Frankston, he is also training to defend his title as a national karate champion. “I’ve just recently won the 2018 Japan Karate Association Championship,” Mr Felipe said. “I’m very lucky, because now I’m an eight time national champion. My first national championship was in 2012 in Melbourne, and this one was one the Sunshine Coast. “In 2017 I competed in Ireland,

and was top five in the world. In the 2014 World Championships in Tokyo I placed top five, and in the US Open in Las Vegas I placed top three.” Felipe, born in the Philippines, started his training in Seaford at age 11. Now he is a black belt, second dan, training in traditional competition under one of Japan Karate Association’s most respected senseis. “I was bullied in school because I was the smallest kid, I was timid and nervous, but because of my parents I got into karate and started to build confidence,” Mr Felipe said. “I started locally up in Seaford with mentor Bruce Hyland, seventh dan. Now I have transferred to another mentor, Takaatsu Nishimura, seventh dan.”

Mr Nishimura said Mr Felipe was an “honest and diligent student”. “He’s one of the top students. In his examination, Gerard exhibited high marks in his technique, his fighting skills, and his form. Those are all set forms, they have been passed down many years from the old masters,” he said. Mr Felipe, halfway through his one year term as youth mayor and also studying Criminology and Politics, now has his eyes on the 2019 Asia-Pacific Championships in Bali. He is also training for the 2020 World Championships in Tokyo. Although accolades are nice, Mr Felipe said that he continues to train out of love for the sport. “Karate is very dynamic,” he said. “I will be training karate until I die.”

A WATERLOGGED kangaroo rescued by two policemen in rough seas off Safety Beach last Saturday week was happily “hopping around” two days later at a cosy refuge, a carer said. Animalia wildlife rescue group president Michelle Thomas said she collected the distressed male roo from the Rosebud police station lock up later that evening, Saturday 27 October, and took him to a specialised kangaroo shelter for some muchneeded TLC. The roo’s bayside rescue, by Rosebud police Sergeant Chris Russo and Senior Sergeant Kirby Tonkin, who stripped off and waded into the waves, made TV news bulletins on Saturday night. Ms Thomas said the roo may have been “spooked” by young dirt bike riders and, in panic, hopped all the way down Boundary Road, Dromana,

to Marine Drive. It fled all the way to Safety Beach followed by cars which Ms Thomas said “only made matters worse”. “We had callers left, right and centre saying they saw it hopping all the way to Safety Beach,” she said, with the hard bitumen wearing his big toe nails right down. “All the noise and the people freaks them out. When they are frightened or being chased they often hop into the water. It can be their only option. They can swim quite well but not when it is rough like it was on Saturday.” Brought to shore by the policemen, the roo was taken back to Rosebud police station in the divvy van and given antibiotics to combat the effects of taking water into his lungs. “He will need peace and quiet and will be released in a few days.” Stephen Taylor

Grant questions: Mr Crewther posted a photo of a meeting with Gretal CEO Alistair Cumming on his public Facebook page on 25 September, 2017.

Dunkley MP’s investments questioned Continued from Page 1 A partner organisation is also defined in the ARC guidelines as “a cash and/or in-kind contributor to the project.” A front page Herald Sun article on 2 November suggested that Mr Crewther would be “at risk” of breaching section 44 (v) of the Constitution as a result of his investment. Mr Crewther has denied all allegations of wrongdoing. “I have fully complied with my disclosure obligations and I am confident they do not raise any concerns,” he said.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison told reporters in Sydney that he was “not concerned” there were any issues relating to Mr Crewther’s eligibility. A vote on the floor of the House of Representatives to send Mr Crewther to the High Court might prove troublesome for the Coalition, as it recently lost its majority due to its defeat at the Wentworth by-election. The government would have to rely on one of the crossbenchers to vote against a referral. Kennedy MP Bob Katter has signalled he would not support a vote to refer Mr Crewther to the High Court. A vote to refer Home Affairs Minis-

ter Peter Dutton to the High Court in August for a potential violation of section 44 (v) was defeated 69-68. A change in the Dunkley electorate boundaries has seen the seat become nominally Labor, making a by-election an unattractive prospect for Mr Crewther. Mr Crewther’s Labor opponent in the next federal election will be Peta Murphy. Mr Crewther narrowly defeated Ms Murphy in 2016 to earn his first term as an MP, replacing outgoing Liberal Bruce Billson, who had held the seat since 1996.

Boat votes: Carrum MP Sonya Kilkenny visited the Blessing of the Fleet ahead of the upcoming election in her ultramarginal seat. Picture: Supplied

Boats blessed before rescue season THE Blessing of the Fleet for emergency services’ search and rescue vehicles has been held at Frankston Pier. The Blessing of the Fleet is an annual event that recognises the work of maritime emergency services on the water, including the volunteer Coast Guard, volunteer Marine Rescue, Victoria Water Police, Life Saving Victoria, and Victoria State Emergency Service. The event kicked off at St Paul’s Church before moving to the pier,

Mount Martha

when the craft were blessed prior to the beginning of their duties during boat season. The Blessing of the Fleet has been hosted by the Frankston Coast Guard for more than 40 years. “The Blessing of the Fleet is a symbol of support for our brave volunteers who take to the water to ensure that everyone remains safe,” Carrum MP Sonya Kilkenny said at the event. “Our volunteer emergency services perform an outstanding and vital job,

CarruM Downs

day by day, year by year, in ensuring our waterways are a less dangerous place to be. “Marine Search and Rescue volunteers are currently receiving new vessels and engines, as part of the Victorian government’s record $11.34 million investment in the sector. Through this program, the government is providing the Frankston Coast Guard with funding for a new vessel as well as engine upgrades.”

THREE out of five board members of Peninsula Leisure have been replaced in a significant shake-up. Frankston Council confirmed that, three new “non-executive directors” have been appointed to the board. Mr Paul Faulkner, Mr Scott Nathan and Mr Rob Hines will replace outgoing board members Ms Barbara Cook, Mr David Shilbury and Mr Simon Allatson. The terms for new board members run until 31 October, 2021. Mr Roseanne Healy and Mr Phillip Johnson remain on the board. Peninsula Leisure operates the PARC swimming centre, and the Pines Forest Aquatic Centre on behalf of Frankston Council. Outgoing Frankston mayor Cr Colin Hampton praised the “high quality” of the new appointees. “We have continued to attract high quality candidates for these positions. This paired with the award-winning facilities managed and operated by the company demonstrates that Peninsula Leisure is a leader in the industry. It is a great outcome for Frankston City that we have this calibre of applicants wanting to work for our community,” he said. “On behalf of Council and the community I would like to thank outgoing members Ms Barbara Cook, Professor David Shilbury and Mr Simon Allatson. Their service and direction during the important phase of establishing the award-winning facility has built a strong foundation, which continues to grow. With new state of the art facilities installed at PARC and a string of awards already, I am excited to see what the new team can achieve, with such a strong starting point.”

THE Frankston Combined Probus Club will be celebrating their 25th anniversary with an event at the Frankston RSL. The event will take place at 10am of 16 November at the RSL Pavillion. Probus Club secretary Mary Scott said “Probus an association of active retirees who join together in Clubs, the basic purpose of which is to provide regular opportunities to keep their minds and bodies active, to expand their interests and enjoy the fellowship of new as well as old friends. “We would appreciate people to come and celebrate our 25th Anniversary.”

Council looks to feedback for reducing gas emissions FRANKSTON Council will be hosting two “listening post” sessions to help receive feedback about their towards zero emissions plan. Council has released its draft of the plan, which they said “aims to help Council and the community avoid and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and their impact on climate change.” Frankston mayor Cr Colin Hampton said the community’s feedback on the draft plan is “critical if Council and the community are to reduce their emissions and for Council to reach its carbon neutral target of zero net emissions by 2025.” The first session will be held at 10.30am on 8 November at Frankston Library. The second will be at 3.30pm on 28 November at Carrum Downs Library. The draft plan is available to view at frankston.vic.gov.au

Future so bright you’ll need to wear shades: Seaford Football Club are winners no matter the election result, after the state opposition pledged to match funding by Carrum MP Sonya Kilkenny. Picture: Gary Sissons

Bipartisan funding for Seaford footy LIBERAL Carrum candidate Donna Bauer has visited RF Miles Reserve to announce a $2.6 million funding commitment to the ground if the state Coalition win the upcoming election. This announcement matches the election commitment made by Labor MP Sonya Kilkenny on 19 October towards new facilities. The Seaford Football Club home ground has been out of use due to nearby Level Crossing Removal project works. “We’ve listened to the community and we’re getting on and building a better RF Miles Reserve where more families can spend quality time together,” Ms Kilkenny said about her commitment. “We’re building on what people already love about Seaford, creating more open space and a brand new pavilion for local sports clubs to grow. I’d like to thank Seaford residents for their patience as these important works were undertaken, this level crossing removal now means a safer and less congested community. “Major works to restore and improve the oval will start later this year, with the brand new surface ready to go for the 2020 footy season.”

Frankston mayor Cr Colin Hampton has expressed his support for the “positive announcements” being made for the ground. “We have had numerous discussions with politicians and candidates and will continue advocating for this vital upgrade to be completed ahead of the state election in November,” he said. “I’d like to thank Seaford Cricket Club and Seaford Football Netball Club for their efforts in lobbying for this project, and urge the community and club members to continue to raise their voice and let candidates know that this project will secure their vote.” Mr Hampton has also called for a commitment of federal funding from Dunkley MP Chris Crewther and Labor candidate Peta Murphy. Council has committed $3.347 million towards works to refurbish the ground. While their ground has been overtaken by level crossing works, Seaford have been playing their home matches at Belvedere Reserve. Donna Bauer and Sonya Kilkenny MP both talked at a forum organised by Frankston Council on 30 August. The election will take place on 24 November.

AN elected Victorian Coalition Government have pledged to implement height restrictions along the foreshore from Mentone through to Frankston. The state opposition says that they will work with Frankston and Kingston councils to “get back in control of population growth” by implementing mandatory 8 metre height limits in residential areas up to Kananook Creek. They say that the restriction is expected to “apply to the residential areas between the beach, the railway line, and the area south of Seaford Road will be subject to consultation with the council and consistent with their structure plans.” Liberal state MPs and candidates used the announcement as an opportunity to fire repeated shots at the Labor party. “We need to put the brakes on Daniel Andrews’ unplanned and unmanaged population growth and that includes overdevelopment on our beachside suburbs,” Frankston Liberal candidate Michael Lamb said. “The only way to stop Labor’s out of control population growth and overdevelopment of our suburbs is to vote Liberal at the state election next month.” Opposition leader Matthew Guy MP also took aim at “unmanaged population growth”. “An elected Liberal Nationals government will introduce mandatory height controls in areas of our beachside suburbs to get back

in control of Labor’s unplanned, unmanaged population growth. Mandatory 8 metre height controls will prevent more overdevelopment that would ruin the liveability of the area,” he said. “Only a Liberal Nationals government will ease the population squeeze in suburbs like Mentone, Parkdale, Mordialloc, Aspendale, Edithvale, Chelsea, Bonbeach, Carrum, Seaford and Frankston.” Carrum Liberal candidate for Carrum Donna Bauer said “I’m doing a lot of door knocking and the constant feedback I get is that this area is overdeveloped and Labor have lost control of population growth.”

Lloyd Park plans unveiled federal government, while the other $3 million is reliant on a Coalition win at the state election. “This is the biggest commitment ever seen for Lloyd Park, and it is a fantastic outcome for the Langwarrin community,” Mr Crewther said. “With approximately 2000 members, the current space available is proving difficult to allow future growth and this investment will transform Lloyd Park. The re-development will encourage greater participation and attendance to the ground and provide a local hub for the wider community to enjoy.” Mr Crewther visited the Lloyd Park ground with Hastings MP Neale Burgess. The proposed redevelopment will see the construction of new sporting and social rooms, new netball courts, seating, lighting, shade sails, car parking, and a playground.

Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au PLANS for a revamped Lloyd Park in Langwarrin have been revealed as the Liberals pledged $6 million dollars to the project. The commitment is only half of the quoted price for the upgrade, and the state and federal Liberals have called for Labor to match funding for the project. Dunkley MP Chris Crewther said that he would be working with Frankston Council to “lock in the rest of the funding required for the upgrade so that construction can get underway.” As of 2 November, no business case has been presented to councillors. Council’s top priorities for sport have been outlined as funding Jubilee Park and Centenary Park. $3 million of the announced commitment is “budgeted funding” by the

THE state opposition says it will pay $1.4 million over four years for headspace to provide outreach services to 12 to 25 year olds in regional Victoria and Melbourne, including the Mornington Peninsula. “Young people on the peninsula will be able to access mental health support easier and closer to home under an elected Liberal Nationals government,” Hastings MP Neale Burgess said. “Programs could include social events for young people or regular services in communities without a permanent headspace location. “headspace is a safe space for young people to come and talk about what they’re going through and these grants will mean we can provide more opportunities to do this out in the community.”

Council fights to stop termite bite blight at local sites KINGSTON Councillors have voted to declare the municipality as a “termite prone” area. The decision, which was voted on at the 22 October council meeting, will see extra measures put in place to “increase community awareness about the risks of termites at properties and to increase measures to prevent them.” “CSIRO reports have revealed that termites are prevalent across Victoria. Being declared a termite prone area will ensure that developers put in measures to protect new properties against infestations,” Kingston mayor Cr Steve Staikos said. “Homeowners with existing properties who have any concerns, are encouraged to invite an expert to their property to assess their risk.” Frankston Council is also considered one of 15 municipalities classified as “termite prone”. Bubbling paint, mud in plasterwork, or disintegrating wood are among the signs of a termite problem.

Champions strike a chord against cancer By Barry Morris

It was a swinging affair, hip, hep, and as cool as Lizzy Gascoigne’s jazz band Kissing Harriet was performing on 24 October to a sold-out audience in the heritage-listed Beleura House, the Italianate mansion at Mornington. The Pink Ribbon Day concert was held by Cancer Council’s Mornington Peninsula volunteer group to raise money to fight cancer. Formed in 2004, the group has previously raised almost $70,000 with three lunch events at Mornington Racing Club. The concert was also a meeting of heavyweight champions, with jazz pianist Bob Sedergreen performing on “the biggest and best piano in the world”, also called the Beleura. Made by Australian piano maker Wayne Stuart, the three metre long Beleura weighs 644kg and has nine octaves. The Tallis Foundation, on behalf of Beleura House, commissioned Stuart to make the Beleura from ancient Huon Pine. It took him 18 months and was delivered last month to great acclaim. In jazz, there’s not much that Sedergreen, who weighs a lot less, hasn’t done, establishing a name as one of the finest pianists in Australia. In a career spanning more than half a century, he’s performed with internationally renowned artists from Dizzy Gillespie to Milt Jackson;

he’s a national treasure, recording artist, music teacher and this year was inducted into the Graeme Bell Hall of Fame. In the beautiful Tallis Auditorium, the great man approached the piano, sat down, cast an eye up and down the keyboard and played. “This is the Rolls-Royce of pianos and it’s made in Australia. More things should be made in Australia,” Sedergreen declared. By a twist of fate, he had played on a smaller version in Perth. It too, made by Stuart, had also been bought by Beleura House and was in the same room. Earlier, more than 80 guests parked in Mornington Golf Course car park and were bussed to the house where they sipped pink champagne and ate canapes in the Melba Room. Then it was time for the concert and guests moved into auditorium where Tallis foundation director Anthony Knight, all elegance and style and wearing a pink tie, explained how they ended up with so many pianos. “I told Wayne Stuart we wanted the best piano you can make and he sold us the Perth piano – and then he said we should have two of them,” he said. Mornington branch of Cancer Council Victoria coordinator Karla Freer spoke about how her group was engaged in the fight against triple negative breast cancer, the second biggest killer of women after lung cancer. She also warned men in the audience that breast cancer was not only found in women. On with the show and Lizzy Gascoigne and her band wooed the audience with nine songs chosen to reflect some of the challenges thrown up by life from psychotic infatuation in All of You to the rampaging Spain by Chick Corea, mingling with The Sunny Side of the Street and Nature Boy. There was even a number by Charles Mingus called Weird Nightmare. Gascoigne gets better every time she performs. Buoyed by the brilliance of Sedergreen and musicians who played out of their skin, she had the audience applauding enthusiastically. Dammit, they were almost stamping their feet.

Off leash dog plans all bark and no bite Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au DOG owners will be made to keep their furry friends on a lead when visiting Edithvale Beach, after a proposal to let four legged companions roam free was rejected by council. On 22 October Kingston Council voted to turn down the proposal. Kingston mayor Cr Steve Staikos said “council received nearly 1,000

submissions from community members opposing the plan, and a number of other issues were raised through the consultation process.” “From the responses we identified some common issues. Residents are fed up with people not picking up after their dogs, they would like more patrols, have access to free dog bags, and see more fenced off leash areas created in Kingston. “Council has taken on board all of the feedback we’ve received and

struck the right balance.” Councillors decided as part of their decision not to proceed with a 24-hour off leash zone on Edithvale Beach that they would “investigate alternative options for fenced off leash areas in the South Ward in non foreshore reserves, undertake a report into the feasibility of introducing disposable dog bags” and “increase patrols during the summer on Kingston’s foreshores”. Dog owners are now restricted to

set times in which they can have their pets off leash. From 1 November to 31 March, dogs are only permitted to be off leash on sanded areas from sunrise to 10am. Dogs are forbidden on the beach between 10am and 7.30pm. From 7.30pm onwards, dogs on the beach can be walked on leash. From 1 April to 31 October, dogs must be on a leash from 11am to 3pm. They are permitted off leash on the sanded areas at all other times.

A consultation session was held on 16 October to engage with residents about their thoughts on the proposal. The matter was set to be discussed at the 24 September council meeting, but was deferred to make time for this consultation and to provide absent south ward councillors David Eden and Tamsin Bearsley a chance to contribute to discussion.

Quality care at St Augustine Family Medical Centre ST Augustine Family Medical Centre is not your regular practice, since we started October 2015 we have set ourselves apart from the rest with our approach to patient care. We offer an automatic extended first consultation (between 20-30 minutes) for every new patient, allowing the doctor to have the time to obtain the necessary medical history and establish rapport with the patient. All patients over 70 are also allocated a long consultation unless otherwise requested by the GP. Our regular consultation is 15 minutes. Even the clinic set up and design has been arranged with the utmost patient care in mind. Utilising our principal doctor’s over 15 years of experience in surgery in general and orthopaedic surgery in particular, the clinic features an up-to-date two bay treatment room with a quiet cubicle for use as a quiet room for emergency patients, with a hospital grade emergency trolley. In less than 12 months the practice acquired RACGP accreditation and soon after was accredited as a refugee health provider. We continue to offer placements for work experience for students in years 10-12 aspiring for a career in healthcare, and we are currently on a waiting list to be accredited as a teaching GP practice. Our aim and goals have always

been for quality over quantity when it comes to patient care. The practice has special interests in women’s health (we have a women’s health clinic on Fridays), chronic disease management, skin cancer checks, mental health, musculoskeletal conditions, contraception, smoking cessation, obesity and weight management, paediatrics and minor surgery. We have pathology, dietitian, diabetes and asthma education service on site. All the services are bulk billed. We are also open extended hours Monday to Friday from 8am to 8pm, Saturdays 8am to 6pm and Sundays 9am to 5pm, in a bid to take a load off the emergency department of our local hospital, hence playing our part in assisting and lightening the load of the public sector and providing our patients with exceptional services all while not affecting their out of pocket cost.

4 Million Australians have a hearing loss NEPEAN Hearing is offering free hearing tests and rating your Hearing for Your Age (for the over 40’s). The number of Australians who are hearing impaired is increasing because of • the Ageing Population –we are living longer • excessive Noise - in the workplace and high level music Hearing loss is often described as the ‘invisible disability’. People often wait for 5-10 years before they seek help. Hearing loss may also be a contributing factor in the speed of onset of dementia. The degree of loss is also correlated to the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. It is important to know about your hearing. Many people ignore the signs of hearing loss, which include turning the TV or stereo up so loud that others complain, frequently needing to ask others to repeat themselves and not being able to hear properly on the telephone. Constant ringing is also another warning sign of hearing loss. As technology advances, many people with hearing loss benefit from hearing aids. These innovations have made a positive difference in the way they can communicate and enjoy their lives.

Nepean Hearing is an independently owned clinic and the audiologists are University of Melbourne trained. For hearing screenings our main office is located across the road from Frankston Hospital at 13 Hastings Road, Frankston, phone: 9783 7520.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

German atrocities - A ghastly record - A war of civilization Compiled by Brodie Cowburn THE atrocities committed by the Germans in France and Belgium should induce all eligible Australians to enlist, for they show at a glance what Germany will do to Australia if she is ever allowed to come here. It is vitally important to remember in this connection that the only guarantee that she will not come here now or later lies in an outright victory for the Allies - a victory which every eligible Australian should at this moment be helping to win. By far the most terrible document published since the War began perhaps, indeed, the most terrible document ever given to the world is the official report of the British Commission appointed to examine into the Belgian atrocities. The report is a terrible record of cruelty and lust. Captives and non-combatants were systematically mutilated by the German Army, apparently in accordance with some secret and hideous injunction set down in the devil’s handbook of “frightfulness.” Civilians were freely shot, apparently for the sheer joy of murder. Little children were mutilated, and women were repeatedly violated and then hacked to death, so that their bodies became unrecognisable. Here are two instances of mutilation: “In the blacksmith’s shop in Hofstade I saw the blacksmith dead with his hands cut off and his wrists still tied. Our whole company saw him, I should think. In another house I saw a child of

10 to 11 years kneeling; he was dead, a bayonet had been stuck through his chest. “The other woman was about 20 years old. She had a bayonet wound in the head and her legs had been cut almost off. The whole room was covered in blood. The bodies of the two women were lying side by side, and that of the man a little apart. We entered another house further on, on the same side of the road. In the downstairs room was a hanging lamp, and a boy of about 10 years of age was hanging to it by a piece of string. The string was round his neck. He has a bayonet wound in the stomach. There was a pool of blood under the body. The blood had dried, I think. I did not touch any of these four bodies.” The atrocities on women should come home with terrible force to every Australian who values his manhood. Such loathsome acts as the following were of repeated occurrence: “When we entered Hofstade in August last, or some village near to it, a girl of about 18 or 19 years of age complained to me and my comrades (four) that she had been violated by several German soldiers for a period of about two hours before we entered the village on the threshold of a house in full daylight and in view of villagers. When I saw her she was covered only with a chemise and skirt.” In the name of humanity, every Australian of military age is today asked to enlist, so that these horrors may be avenged, and the world may

be made safe for ever from the possibility of their recurrence. If Germany is not beaten, Australian homes may yet be visited by the Hun during the lifetime of you to whom this appeal is addressed. Go forth and play your part. *** MRS. W. P. Mason of “Tally Oh’’ requests us to notify that she intends to form an orchestra in Frankston for patriotic purposes and will be pleased if those willing to join will notify her at the above address. *** ON Tuesday, 19th November, at 3 o’clock, M r Bernard Michael will offer for sale it the Royal hotel, Dandeuong, a farm property at Carrum, known as Walsh’s, containing 100 acres (about), Situated two miles from Seaford and Frankston Railway Stations by a good road. There is four rooms 1 wooden house and out buildings. *** REV J. E. Warren, of Balaclava, will conduct the three services on Sunday next in connection with the Frankston Methodist Sunday School Anniversary. A special feature will be the singing of the children, assisted by an efficient orchestra. On the following Monday evening there will be a public entertainment, when an attractive programme will be presented. *** STRAYED into my Paddock, Humphries Road, Frankston, Chestnut Pony, white face, two white spots on back, no visible brands. Owner can have same by paying

expenses. T. REEVES, Frankston, *** A.I.F. Xmas Book. An unexpected opportunity is now afforded the public of Australia to secure copies of a second great souvenir of the part played by Australians in the war. This is the “A.I.F. Xmas Book” previously issued only to the troops overseas. It forms a companion publication of the “Anzac Book” a few copies of which are still obtainable. While the “Anzac Book” dealt with the campaign in Gallipoli, the “Xmas Book” relates wholly to the briliant exploits of the Australians in France. It contains over 150 engravings ranging from grave to gay and covers the period from the arrival of the A.I.F. in France to the date of issue. There are pictures of every battlefield over which the Australians fought. These were taken at frequent intervals in the actual fighting at Florubaix. Armentieres, Pozieres, Mouquet Farm, the Somme in winter, Flers, Martinpuich, Le Sars Bapaume, Bullecourt, the Hindenburg Line, Measines, Polygon Wood and Ypres. The “Xmas Book” has been described by a high British authority as “the finest collection of war photographs I have yet seen.” It has been published under the direction of a committee composed of Major General N. M. Symth, Major General E. G. Sinclair Maclagan and Mr C. E. W. Bean official war correspondent.

For Australia the sale of the “Xmas Book” has been placed in the hands of a committee of which Mr Thomas Trumble, secretary for Defence, is chairman. Copies may be had at 4s 6d each from leading booksellers. They are not to be sold to the public in Great Britain and when present supplies are exhausted it will be impossible to secure copies as the book will not be reprinted. Already £4,500 has been paid into the troops patriotic funds from the sale of the books and it is hoped that a further substantial contribution will result from the sale affected in Australia. *** Our Letter Box. TO THE EDITOR Sir, An earnest endeavour is now being made to establish a sub branch of the returned sailors’ and soldiers’ Imperial League in Frankston. A meeting is called for Saturday, 16th inst., in the Mechanics’ Institute, at 7 p.m. In reply to Mr C. Wood’s letter of an earlier date, the bye-laws and rules of the constitution, as already established in various sub branches, will be adopted. Dealing with memberships, the rule reads: Any person who has served in, or with, the British army or navy, on active service, and who is not now eligible for enlistment will be entitled to membership. Hoping to see a good number. V. N. HYNDES. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 9 November 1918

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Your Guide to Being the Office DJ By Stuart McCullough IT’S an awesome responsibility. One that sat on my shoulders like fullgrown gorilla without impulse control. Get it right, and it would bring people together. Get it wrong, and it could repel those in attendance resulting in a room that was cavernously empty and echoing with the sound of failure. Not that I wasn’t up for the challenge. After all, it was my first official attempt at being the ‘office DJ’. I say ‘official’ in that my colleagues have borne the brunt of my musical predilections. There have been car trips where the question ‘I can’t believe you’ve never heard of [insert band name here]’ which, but for the fact that I had complete control of the stereo, would have resulted in awkward silence. But this was different. This was an event with guests. Trying to keep people broadly happy was the name of the game. There was no room for error and, as a result, obscure musical choices would need to be kept to an absolute minimum. My history as a disc jockey might best be described as ‘checkered’ if you’re being polite and ‘controversial’ if you’re being honest. I can recall being let loose at someone’s twentyfirst and managing to clear the dance floor in record time. Turns out, very few people like Lyle Lovett as much as I do. Or my last day of high school when I commandeered the public address system and confused a generation of youngsters by spinning Chad Morgan’s ‘The Sheik From Scrubby Creek’, followed by Dolly Parton’s ‘9 to 5’. (I was being ironic. I think.) There are family functions too nu-

PAGE 28

merous to mention when my musical choices have dented the momentum somewhat. My insistence that we ditch the more traditional ‘Happy Birthday’ in favour of Carl Orff’s ‘Carmina Burana’ was not as well received as I’d hoped. And it caused quite some confusion for the twelve year old whose birthday it was. Ditto the time that I decided that the Beastie Boys would be a suitable a backdrop only for stunned silence to follow as an avalanche of f-bombs fell down over Sunday lunch. Glancing through the songs on my computer, I knew that simply selecting ‘shuffle’ and hoping for the best would be tempting fate. And fate, as

Frankston Times 6 November 2018

we know, is an absolute sucker for temptation. Granted, I could see some Sam Cooke and James Brown; things I knew that everybody could enjoy. But I could also see less appropriate songs, such as Andrew WK’s somewhat selfexplanatory ‘Party ‘Til You Puke’ and the never-appropriate-at-work ‘Nude School’ by Painters and Dockers. I would have to make playlist specific to the occasion. But before selecting which tunes to inflict on workmates and guests alike, I needed to build a sense of anticipation. More importantly, I needed to lower expectations. So that whatever I came up with would feel like welcome relief. When word got out that I was

putting together a playlist, I’d be sure to say something encouraging like, ‘I sure hope everyone likes gangster rap as much as I do.’ Generally, this was greeted with a shuffling of feet and an avoidance of eye contact. Had expectations been any lower, you could trip over them. I knew I’d overstepped the mark when a larger than expected number of potential guests offered their apologies. But it’s not just a matter of the songs. It’s also the question of volume. The wrong choice when it comes to volume can completely ruin an office event. Too soft and you run the risk of being a total buzz kill. Too loud and you may drive people out of the

venue. The latter describes my entire career as a musician when, invariably, we cranked up the amps and the sea of people on the dance floor would part as though Moses himself was rocking to microphone. Importantly, I ran a series of tests. I tried various songs at different volumes and tried to calculate the sound-absorbing effect of a room full of people. As best I could tell, it was loud enough to be heard (and, importantly, to let everyone know awesome my taste in music is) without stifling conversation. I gravitated towards the classics. I’m talking Solomon Burke, Joe Tex, Aretha Franklin and Etta James. Everyone likes soul music. Except, of course, Vladimir Putin, who is completely immune to human emotion and is on the record as being a huge fan of the band Aqua. Luckily, Putin wasn’t coming. He always brings down the mood and there was not a cinder’s chance in hell that I was going to give ‘Barbie Girl’ a spin, no matter how much he begged. At the right moment, I connected the laptop to the Bluetooth speaker and we were away. Music started. There was even the ultimate office DJ accolade of heads nodding in an appreciative manner. Importantly, nobody left the room to get away from the noise I was making. Music is a funny thing. It can and should bring people together. But it requires care and planning, and should not be left to chance. I’m all for algorithms that read your mind, but there’s something to be said for something that requires time and effort. And avoiding Aqua. Rock on. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Light work: Pines made light work of Baden Powell to claim the first innings. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Pines’ bowling puts Baden Powell to the sword By Brodie Cowburn

PENINSULA

PINES have put on a clinical bowling performance to easily claim the first innings over Baden Powell. Baden Powell’s first four wickets fell for just 18 runs, leaving them little hope of getting anywhere near Pines’ total. Damien Lawrence was pick of the bowlers for Pines, tearing through the tail to claim figures of 4/16 off 16 overs. Pines then enforced the follow on, and left Pines at 1/20 going into their second innings. Red Hill faced off a decent charge from Somerville to hold their first innings lead, although an impressive knock of 49 runs from opener Brenton Alp caused the Hillmen some headaches. Brent Martin was at his best for Red Hill, claiming figures of 5/47. Somerville fell just short of their target of 184, ending up all out for 152. The result is particularly disappointing given they looked a good chance at 7/147. Main Ridge have fallen agonisingly shirt of catching up to Crib Point’s first innings total in their two-dayer match. Crib Point set a healthy total of 190 to chase at Ditterich Reserve, and were given a good run for their money. William Noall’s middle order knock of 49 nearly proved the difference, as his side was bowled out just 8 runs short of taking the lead. Ridge’s last

three batsmen combined for just four runs. At Ballam Park East, Long Island’s dismal first innings total of 75 was quite easily surpassed by Moorooduc. Madushanka Perera’s innings of 61 was nearly enough to pass the total alone, as his side combined for a good total of 168 all out. Long Island showed a little more fight as they got their second innings underway, pulling up stumps at 4/137.

DISTRICT

ROSEBUD struggled to defend their first innings total of 145 against Carrum at Roy Dore reserve. Carrum’s openers got things off on the right foot, and at 0/55 they looked to be cruising their way to a win. John Mitchell was handy with 49 before being dismissed by the impressive Billy Quigley. Carrum surpassed 145 with 7 wickets still in hand. Delacombe Park comfortably went to work about defending 235, as the Seaford Tigers struggled to make a splash in their innings. Thanks to Ricky Ramsdale’s brilliant 4/20 off 20 overs, the Tigers ended up all out for 108. Delacombe Park’s second inning got off to a shakier start, they finished the day at 2/30 off only 8 overs. Hastings easily won the first innings over Seaford, as they batted to 3/178 before declaring. This easily surpassed hastings’ dismal 81 runs from

their first innings. Seaford set about their second innings with a little more purpose, but still ended the day at 7/105. Mitch Anderson was the pick of their batsmen, putting together a total of 43. Mt Martha had to work hard to surpass a total of 145 from Heatherhill. Rhys Whitling’s late innings total of 45 proved a huge help as his side claimed the first innings and finished at 9/162. Rye got nowhere near Dromana’s tame total of 125, as they were left all out and rattled for just 56 runs off 29 overs. Zacc Clan played the game of his life, claiming a brilliant 8/16 off 14 overs. Six of those wickets came from clean bowling his opponents. Dromana followed up with a good second innings total of 3/126 before declaring. Rye were sent in to bat once again and ended up at 4/94 before the end of play for the day.

SUB DISTRICT

FRANKSTON YCW have had little trouble defending their first innings total of 207 at Peninsula Reserve, claiming an easy win over Skye. Skye could only answer with 83 before losing all their wickets, they were sent to follow on for their second innings, and ended the day at a far from inspiring 5/94. All ten Stonecats fieldsmen bowled during the second innings.

At Citation Reserve, Tootgarook have pulled off a miracle to claim victory over balnarring. Chasing a difficult first innings total of 212 to win, Tootgarook’s openers combined for just 13 runs. Luckily first drop batsman Robert French was in an aggressive mood, as he hit 61 runs from only 56 balls. He hit 13 fours, showing he was not much in the mood for too much running between wickets. After the quick loss of three wickets for four runs in the middle order, Tim Symons came in to steady the ship with a cool 58 not out from 131 deliveries. A decent performance from the tail saw Tootgarook successfully reach 213 with two wickets to spare. Carrum Downs will also be devastated to have let slip their first innings lead of 250 over Tyabb. Starting slowly at 2/9 then at 3/35, all looked doom and gloom for the Yabbies. Jarrod White put his hand up for his struggling side, and put together a magnificent century. He claimed 105 runs from 211 deliveries. A brilliant innings of 94 from middle order partner Michael Edwards was enough to put Tyabb ahead at 4/253 from 76 overs.

PROVINCIAL

FLINDERS battled hard to meet Mt Eliza’s total of 203 in Provincial cricket on Saturday, but a tail order collapse

has left them falling short. Blake Hogan-Keogh left his side in pole position with an innings of 87, but those that followed could not build on his hard work. From 4/152, Mt Eliza ended up all out for 178. Pearcedale’s middle order were brave, but fell well short of meeting Mornington’s target of 276. Kaine Smith came within a run of a half century but it wasn’t enough, as his Pearcedale outfit were bowled out for 182. Langwarrin would have felt comfortable heading into the second day of their match against Peninsula Old Boys, defending a total of 295. At 3/120, OB looked to be gaining on their opponents, before two quick wickets fell. Wade Pelzer battled hard with 78, but once he was dismissed the innings fell apart. Peninsula OB were dismissed for 211. Sorrento have pulled off an impossible task to close out the weekend, chasing down Baxter’s mammoth first innings total of 6/318. Opener Corey Harris took matters into his own hands for the Sharks, scoring a stunning 128 to set his side up for a great escape. With time running out, Sorrento made their target with a little more than three overs to spare. They were left with seven wickets in hand and can hold their heads high after a brilliant showing.

Verdun: ‘We’ll win the league’ SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie DANNY Verdun has thrown down the gauntlet to opposition clubs in State 2 South-East declaring that Peninsula Strikers will win the championship next season. Recently appointed as head coach of the Centenary Park club Verdun addressed an audience of mainly current and prospective players last Thursday evening at Strikers’ home ground. Over 70 people attended and listened intently as Verdun told them what he expected from his players. “It doesn’t matter how old you are or your output as a footballer this is all about the attitude you bring to this club,” Verdun said. “If the attitude and hunger is not there, if the desire is not there along with the discipline to do the job that this club deserves – these are the most important things I want to get through to you tonight and this is what the club expects from you.” Verdun touched on his own migrant experience after coming to Australia from his native Uruguay to emphasise the importance of persistence in the face of adversity and the link between hard work and success. He then outlined his aims for next season. “This club is going to win this league next year,” he said. “I’ve had people come up to me at the end of a season and pat me on the back for finishing third and I’m telling you I can’t stand that. “We’re here to win.” There is no doubt that Verdun and assistant Neil Standish who also spoke at the meeting will bring a core group of players with them from previous club Knox City and if they can retain the bulk of Strikers’ 2018 squad then Verdun’s target is realistic. Strikers’ Players’ Player of the Year Alex Van Heerwarden and forward John Prescott have been linked with Langwarrin. Prescott was at Thursday’s meeting while Van Heerwarden was on holiday. Strikers recently made major changes off the field with Trevor Johnston stepping down as president and being replaced by Marty Sutherland, a 40-year-old who hails from Inverness in Scotland. Sutherland played with famous Highland League club Forres Mechanics and has been with Strikers for seven years. Johnston led the club for two years wiping out its debt and eventually

forging a good relationship with Strikers’ junior wing and Sutherland plans to build on Johnston’s achievements. “I wanted to carry on the good work that Trevor has done and to continue his legacy,” Sutherland said. “That’s really important especially with the juniors coming in.” Evidence of the now positive relationship between Strikers’ senior and junior clubs is the presence of seven members from the juniors on Sutherland’s 15-strong committee including junior president Adrian Scalpi. “It’s really important to continue to work with the juniors and we want our reserve team to be an under-23 side,” Sutherland added. He also wants to end the coaching instability that has plagued the club in recent times. Verdun is Strikers’ eighth senior coach in just over 12 months following in the footsteps of Craig Lewis, Billy Buchanan, Willie Raines, Andy O’Dell, Jamie Paterson, Lenny Greenan and Jamie Skelly. The club also has had to cope with a large player turnover. “I think we used 47 players last season and we don’t want to go through that again,” Sutherland said. Verdun’s first session as head coach will be on Tuesday 11 December at Centenary Park. There will be a break over Christmas and New Year before pre-season

resumes on Tuesday 8 January four days before the first of a series of preseason games all at home. In NPL2 Langwarrin continues to build an imposing senior squad for 2019 with news that Springvale White Eagles’ top scorer for the past three seasons, Damir Stoilovic, has agreed to join the Lawton Park outfit. The 21-year-old has scored 35 goals in three seasons and in 2016 was named NPL2 Young Player of the Year. “Damir has been of interest for some time and I watched him on numerous occasions towards the end of the season,” Langwarrin head coach Scott Miller said. “He’ll provide the squad with further quality and depth and more importantly a real balance in our attacking midfield options.” Stoilovic and other recent signings David Stirton, Luis Covarrubias and Jordan Templin are evidence of a new-look senior squad with much improved strikepower as Langwarrin targets a top six finish in NPL2 which would maintain its second-tier status when the elite competition is restructured for the 2020 season. And you can expect more new signings to arrive at Lawton Park. Meanwhile Langwarrin under-16s head coach Doug Hodgson has recently returned from a business trip to the UK and has arranged a series of tour

matches for his squad in England next year. Hodgson is a former Sheffield United defender and was the first Australian to move into management at a professional club in England during his stint as The Blades reserves manager. He has arranged games against Wolves, Birmingham City, West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield United and is hoping to add a match against Watford to the itinerary. In NPLW news Southern United announced last week that physiotherapist Anna Trnka would again work with the players after assisting them with running retraining and sports injury management throughout the 2018 season. Trnka has been part of the Back in Motion Patterson Lakes team since February 2017 after moving to Melbourne from country Victoria. She competed as an elite crosscountry skier for nine years before retiring in 2015 having represented Australia at the World Championships in Val di Fiemme, Italy (2013) and in Falun, Sweden (2015). Trnka’s focus is on active rehabilitation and exercise therapy to help players eliminate pain, prevent injury and enhance performance and her special physiotherapy interests include running assessments, injury prevention screening and Pilates. In State 3 South-East news Frankston Pines announced the resigning of Lewis Potter and Luke Murray last week. Potter, 29, has been with Leicester City’s academy squad and has played with Langwarrin and Strikers. He can play at the back or in midfield.

“I’m delighted we have retained Lewis for 2019,” senior coach Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor said. “He will be important for us both as a player and as a role model for the younger players we have brought in. “He’s an experienced footballer with good technique who likes to keep the ball on the deck.” Murray, 23, is a former Peninsula Strikers and Seaford United player who has played at the back, in midfield and up front at Monterey Reserve. He had spells with South Melbourne and Dandenong Thunder as a junior player. “Luke is a dynamic, technically skilled player who can play in a number of positions and he’ll prove his worth during the season,” Taylor said. Murray is convinced that Pines can bounce straight back after the disappointment of being relegated from State 2 South-East last season. “There’s no way I could leave after we went down and I want to win the league with Pines next year,” Murray said. “I think having ‘Squizzy’ in charge and with the new players he’s bringing in it might be just what the club needed.” Pines also confirmed last week that former president Gary Hodgson and wife Pip, who had served as club treasurer, had been granted life membership. “Both Gary and Pip have worked tirelessly over many years to ensure the club not only survived but were instrumental in gaining approval for the new $3.8 million new clubrooms that will be built at Monterey Reserve,” president Steve Spencer said. “This is a very small way that the club can repay Gary and Pip for everything they have done and achieved over the years.” However one of the downsides of the Hodgsons stepping down from the committee is the increasing likelihood that their son, CJ, has played his last game for Pines. The 25-year-old has played in most outfield positions at Monterey Reserve and has even played in goal but he is due to meet with Doveton officials this week. In an off-season story published in these pages late last year Hodgson said he’d be at Pines as long as his parents were involved which gives newly promoted State 1 South-East outfit Doveton a second-to-none chance to get its man.

Weir aces Cup day feature By Ben Triandafillou THOUSANDS of race goers packed into the Mornington Racecourse on Sunday 4 November for the annual Peninsula Cup. The highlight of the year for the Mornington Racecourse saw a crowd of more than 9,300 people flock into the stands to witness the Warrnambool-based master trainer, Darren Weir, claim yet another country cup. Having also won the Mornington Cup in March with Kings Will Dream, Weir backed-up his success on Sunday to take out the Peninsula Cup with five-year-old stallion, Royal Ace. Despite drifting in the market before the race, Royal Ace managed to run over the heavily supported Mornington-based gelding, Call It A Day, in the final 50 metres of the straight to land the victory. The win made it back-to-back victories for the son of Casino Prince who claimed a benchmark 78 race at Moe in emphatic fashion at his start prior. Royal Ace held a half-length margin over the Wez Hunter-trained Call It A Day (second) and the Maher/ Eustace-trained gelding, Black Sail (third). Winning jockey Ben Allen said his mount, Royal Ace, can be quite a good horse when he starts to switch on. “He’s definitely got his own personality,” Allen said. “When he does have his mind on the job, he can really gallop so that was good.

“I was happy [with the pace], he was in a rhythm and it was just a nice gallop the whole way and I think that’s what made him come into the race really well. “It’s good to get another winner for Weiry and the team, so I couldn’t be happier.” Gallant runner-up, Call It A Day, is likely to back-up into a 2000m race at Flemington on Saturday 10 November, according to trainer Wez Hunter. Hunter said he thought his gelding was very tough, after having a hard run out in front. “I thought he was very brave,” he said. “Ideally we would have wanted a softer lead but he stuck on bravely and I thought he did well.” “He licked out the bin this morning (Monday), and even though he hasn’t raced over 2000m, I think he’ll run it out strongly. “He’ll be hard fit having had 11 starts this preparation and he’s racing very well.” Gun Sydney-based jockey, Tommy Berry, is likely to stay aboard Call It A Day when he heads to Flemington. Overall, the Mornington-based trainers had a relatively successful day at the feature race meeting with the Tony Noonan-trained Raven’s Blaze (Race 3) and the Chris Meagher-trained Born Bad (Race 2) both saluting earlier in the day. The Tony Noonan-trained mare, Raven’s Blaze, was one of the most dominant winners on the card, scoring a comfortable 3.25-length victory to

break her maiden first-up. Following the victory, Noonan said he’ll give the mare another run in two to three weeks’ time before looking towards the autumn for softer tracks. The Chris Meagher-trained gelding,

Born Bad, was also a strong maiden winner at his second career start. The win landed apprentice jockey, Jessica Eaton, her first victory at Mornington for her master trainer, Chris Meagher.

Mitchell bullish, Pen Boxing take three-pronged attack By Ben Triandafillou SEVERAL top boxers from the Mornington Peninsula will be out to finish the year off with a bang when they line-up at the Melbourne Pavilion on Friday 14 December. WBC top-10 ranked fighter, Jayde Mitchell, headlines the card and will face the well-travelled Danish boxer, Kim Poulsen, in the main event. Mitchell will be looking to end his 2018 campaign with a regional title defence following his clear-cut victory over power-puncher Kerry Foley on Friday 7 September. While Mitchell understands that Poulsen is a highly experienced fighter with a record of 28 wins and four losses, he is still supremely confident heading into the night. “I watched footage of him, he’s a well-skilled fighter but I have to put a really good show on if I’m serious about going to bigger and better things,” he said. “He’s well-travelled and fought across the world. I’m expecting him to be in good shape, and even though he has come to fight, he won’t be getting the win.” Poulsen, who was fighting in the welterweight division just a couple of years ago, has returned in the supermiddleweight class in which Mitchell believes he has no right to be in. “I’m not looking past him, I’m looking through him,” he said. “He’s got no business being in my weight division. It’ll be a seek-anddestroy mission to finish the year off with a bang.” Mitchell has big plans ahead for next year and is hoping to end this campaign on a high. “Hopefully we can go from this to one of the biggest domestic fights in

March next year against Zac Dunn,” he said. “It’s going to be an exciting year next year and the offers are really starting to come in now.” Also lining-up on the card is professional boxer, Kane Watts, who has been training alongside Mitchell and his father, Len Mitchell. Watts will be aiming to claim the WBA Oceania title and search for a spot in the top-15 world ratings. Peninsula Boxing will also have a few fighters on the undercard with the likes of Jason Whateley, Jai Alexander and Lochie Higgins all set to step into the ring. Whateley, who is coming off a professional debut victory, will be lining up for his second fight at the

elite level. Peninsula Boxing head coach Marcos Amado believes that Whateley will most likely need to fight an opponent “above and beyond”, with competitors being so hard to find. “No one wants to be in the ring against him,” Amado said. “We’re not looking past this fight but it’s going to be the first belt and the first step towards bigger and better things.” Jai Alexander will likely have a similar problem when finding opponents, having had just the two fights for the year. “He’s also been very difficult to get a fight for but we’ll probably know a bit better with whom they’re up against in the last two to three weeks

before the night,” Amado said. Finally, Higgins will be going up a weight division into the super-middleweight class for the first time. Amado said they’ll be playing it slightly more cautious when coming up against some bigger and heavier hitters as they go from the 72kg to the 76kg of the super-middleweight class. This will be the fighters final hitout for the year and Amado said he

couldn’t be happier with their preparation heading into it. “Everyone’s put in a really solid camp,” he said. “After that we’ll probably have four weeks off and start getting back into things again in the second week of January.” Tickets for the night can be purchased through the boxers.

Road to victory: Mornington Cycling Club members get set to compete in their season’s highlight, the MCC Road Club Championships. Picture: Supplied

Road cyclists compete for club championships By Ben Triandafillou MORNINGTON Cycling Club will host their season’s highlight, the MCC Road Club Championships, in Main Ridge on Saturday 10 November. The sixth annual Road Club Championships concludes a tremendous year for the club with the first event set to kick off at 8:00am. Mornington Cycling Club president Bruce Trew said that the championships are the biggest event of the year for the club. “We’re only a small club but it’s the end of year event where everyone comes together and we crown the best cyclist for the year,” Trew said. “It holds the most prestige of the events we hold throughout the year and honours the best and strongest riders at the club. It gives the top riders a chance to add their name to history.” The championship events are run in age group brackets which include the under-19s, Elite Men

(open age), Women (open age), Masters (under50s), Super Masters (over-50s) and the Legends categories (over-60s). The event also caters for juniors with a one to two lap support ride also held on the day. The under-19s Joel Hawkins Scholarship, named in honour of one of the brightest riders on the Peninsula who tragically died in a cycling accident three years ago, will also be awarded on the day. The scholarship offers an up-and-coming talent support for their road cycling development over a 12 month period as a racing member of MCC. It also provides a full package of coaching, physical therapy, bike servicing, MCC membership and kit. To ride in the event you need to be a member of the Mornington Cycling Club.

BASEBALL pitcher Jackson Boyd, of Langwarrin, returned to Florida after representing Australia in the under-23s Baseball World Cup in Colombia on Sunday 28 October. The now 19-year-old, having had his birthday while competing in the World Cup, joined an Australian contingent of 24 players and competed against 12 international teams at the competition. The Australian team finished in ninth place overall, but Boyd said he still had an exceptional time representing his country. “The World Cup this year was an experience of a lifetime,” he said. “To be able to travel to that part of the world and do what I love is a blessing. To play at such a high level and compete was an amazing experience.” Boyd said he enjoyed the trip over to Colombia but the key to the great experience was competing at the World Cup with people he now knows so well. “Nothing beats the feeling of being able to wear your country on your chest with guys you played with and against ever since I was 12-years-old.” The Australia team was placed in Group B and faced five international teams being Korea, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, the Dominican Republic, and the Czech Republic in the group stage. Australia were defeated two to four by Venezuela in the opening round, before hitting back with a five to three victory over the Czech Republic in the second round. Australia then scored a narrow victory over the Dominican Republic, three to four, in the third round. Korea were ruthless in the fourth round and defeated the Australian side by seven runs, 14 to seven, before Australia finished the group stage with a narrow three to two loss against Puerto Rico. In the consolation rounds, Australia faced host-nation Colombia where they were defeated by 13 runs with a final score of five to 18. Australia ended the competition on a high scoring two dominant victories over the Netherlands (16-3) and South Africa (4-9). Boyd, who is studying sports science at North West Florida College and following his passion for baseball, will now stay in Florida until Christmas before making a trip back home.

McGill’s Choice can’t be caught By Ben Triandafillou MORNINGTON-based trainer, Logan McGill, has a seriously quick horse on his hands. The four-year-old son of Written Tycoon, Written Choice, made it back-to-back victories for the trainer on Friday 26 October, when he clocked the third fastest time of 54.77 seconds around the tight 955m Moonee Valley track. It made it three wins from four times that jockey, Stephen Baster, has taken a sit on him. Trainer Logan McGill said it was a fantastic feeling to see Written Choice overcome the wide barrier (10) and win the $120,000 sprint. “The other day when he won, he won a similar sort of race. It was expected of him to win that day but leading into this one there wasn’t as much expected because of the wide draw,” McGill said. “It was relief the start before but I was absolutely rapt to see him run such as sizzling time and win the race.” Written Choice led all-the-way at his most recent victory, narrowly defeating Essence of Terror and Pravro, a further two-lengths away in third. McGill said Written Choice is a “quirky sort

Bulls sign 1000 goal star By Brodie Cowburn KARINGAL Football Club have pulled off a huge coup by bringing former Cranbourne full-forward Marc Holt to the club. The signing is a huge deal for the Bulls, who were dumped from MPNFL Division Two finals this year in straight sets. The signing of Holt could prove the difference for the Bulls as they seek Division One promotion. The Bulls scored the least amount of points of all finals clubs in 2018, and will benefit from another avenue to goal. Holt made headlines at the end of this season when he booted his 1000th goal for the

Cranbourne Eagles. Cranbourne FC President Gerry Kelly had previously indicated he was hopeful that Holt would stay. The Eagles had their application to join the MPNFL rejected, and will now join the Yarra Ranges league. Between Marc Holt at Karingal and Brendan Fevola at his new club Hastings, there are sure to be plenty of goals kicked in Division 2 this season. Karingal will also kick off their 2019 campaign with a new coach at the helm. Brendan Dunne has been appointed.

of horse” who has had the tendency to miss the start, but the booking of jockey, Stephen Baster, has made a massive difference. “He missed the kick first-up last preparation so we knew we needed to sort out his barrier tendencies,” he said. “We approached Stephen [Baster] and he got to know him a bit. He gave him a trial at Mornington and worked him, and now they’ve meshed really well and haven’t taken a backwards step since.” Despite being a highly energetic stallion come race day, McGill said he’s a completely different animal back at home. “He’s a highly strung stallion who can tend to get himself wound up on race day but you couldn’t get a better mannered horse when he’s back at the stables,” he said. Following his fourth career victory from his eight starts, McGill has pointed out that Written Choice will now be heading towards the Listed Absolut Stakes (1000m) down the straight at Flemington on Thursday 8 November. “He deserves his chance in a race like that,” he said. “It looks like the next logical step.”
